Xeno

Xeno is a singer/songwriter whose uncle George Biando was the bass player for the band Steppenwolf.

Xeno was seen on South Park episode 704 (image left).

It is suspected that his web site Xenophilia.com inspired the character Xenophilius Lovegood in the final “Harry Potter” novel by billionaire Joanne Rowling.

Xeno has been collecting and puzzling over strange ideas on line since the birth of the Internet.

Xeno supports Amnesty International (the anti-torture people). In January of 2014 he became the Director of the World Peace Research Institute.

Amy Anne

Amy Anne, the other vocal half of Sammie Award Hall of Fame band Xenophilia recorded a solo album, Supergirl, featuring original songs and some favorite covers (mainly jazz standards), including a song written by Jason Mraz as a tribute to this fabulous musician and friend. Her credits with Xenophilia include winning three (2000, 2001, and 2003) Sacramento Area Music Awards (aka “Sammies”) for Best Folk Band and winning the Sammie Hall of Fame award in 2004. She’s had the pleasure of working with such artists as Xeno, Hence Phillips, Jackie Greene, Jason Mraz, Bill Mylar, and Holly Holt.

Xenophilia (the Band)

See the Band Bio. Xenophilia toured with the comedy troupe I Can’t Believe It’s Not Comedy, played several shows in Hollywood, opened for Jason Mraz, and recorded with John McCrea and Gabe Nelson of Cake on Xenophilia’s album, Cafe of Love.

    With regards to Rods (Funnily enough listening to radio special on ‘Rod’ Stewart at the moment!)has anybody got hold of various insects and released them, filming the results of their flight? If they are insects, surely you could prove this by using various films, shutter speeds and insects? If they alive, why have no bodies been found or is it that they only visible on film because they exist outside the normal light spectrum? (Not hard when you consider how much visible light we see, when compared to the invisible part of the spectrum (Likewise UFOs). Another thing if orbs are dust particles, why not prove it by hitting furniture and filming the rising particles? Where are the experiments I want to know, rather than the theories?

    Nice.
    keep on posting.
    But at the same time, What I believe is there is nothing paranormal.
    Everything is definable or will be definable by science.

    Hi Xeno.

    So I am reading this “about” site to find out more about the author behind this blog. All it says is that you are a singer/songwriter whose uncle was the bassist in Led Zeppelin. What does that have to do with popular science?

      Hi Anna, Um, damn, are you with the relevancy of blog authorship police? :-/ No, not Zeppelin, some other old famous rock band.

      ….If you are looking for my credentials I very purposefully do not list any because I’m here to tell you, among other things, that information is what matters. Learn to Trust yourself, your powers of observation, your experience. Experts are only useful if they can point you to the best evidence when there is ambiguity. In what I post on this blog, I want it not to matter if I’m a doctor, a secret government agent, a Nobel prize winning researcher, or a crazy homeless guy with one eye and a wooden chin.

    I agree. Credentials most times aren’t worth the paper they are printed on. Observe and learn. When the student is ready the teacher will appear….:)

    Hello Xeno.

    Thanks for your reply. No, I am not currently in the blog authorship relevancy police corps, I was just curious. I actually do find it interesting what an authors educational/professional background is. It does say something about a person: it says that the person chose to study a particular field for some time (but not why), or that a person has insight into a particular industry (but not which insight). So I always read the ‘about’.

    In my case, my resume doesn’t say anything about who I am as a person or what my interests are, because there are a number of partly random and partly undisclosed reasons for my educational & professional path. However, it does indicate certain lines of experience and certain theoretical frameworks, which of course shapes the way I think.

      Makes sense. To quote Dan Bern, if you must put me in a box make it a big box… With lots of windows…and a door to walk through.

        OK, I consider you a general specialist in the Universe et cetera (including all windows and any door).

      Gibby, far out. Really far. You have, without a doubt, made the weirdest most random David Bowie tribute video in the known universe. My logical mind fought it, but I laughed out loud, nevertheless. I expect that your video will be used in the future by doctors as therapy for the overly rational or by the military as a form of torture to trigger confessions or insanity, depending on the dosage.
